Paper Crafting Fun!

Well it is the beginning of a new week and I hope all of you, my dear blog readers have had a wonderful weekend enjoying the great outdoors, or indoors, or what ever makes an enjoyable weekend for you!!  I have come to realize that it is important to enjoy each day as it comes, no matter the weather, to enjoy the people we are with, and to make the most of each day we have!

Today I was particularly blessed to have a visit with a dear friend, then I came home and spent some time mucking around in my craft room. Oh how I love to spend time in the craft room playing with my tools and being creative! Today I was playing with some of my roller stamps from stampin up  and was able to come up with a cute card from a sketch  from seizethebirthday . I just love the talented artists that provide us with sketches on so many of the challenge sites and am so thankful that they are willing to share their work in this generous way.  I have chosen to do my card with a very spring theme as well to enter the challenge at  addicted to cas .

I would just like to mention what CAS means for those of you who may not know. This is taken from the addictedtocas.blogspot

                                                           It means clean and simple. 
This means that you must create a project with very few embellishments (I know it's hard), clean lines and lots of 'white' space.
White space just means an area of your card with nothing on it at all. It doesn't have to be 'white'. It could be brown, pink or red. Any colour as long as there is lots of SPACE.

The card is very simple and self explanatory. I hope you love it as much as I do! 

I am entering this card in the following challenges:



Thank you so much for coming to my blog today. I would love for you to leave me a comment, and please join me as a follower!

    Beautiful and totally, perfectly clean and simple! The three pearls in the top right hand corner rock your design! Ties everything together and adds that wee bit of subtle pop that white space sometimes needs!
